ESS 188.8.131.52 behaves really strange on my Win7 x64 SP1 and I just can't figure it out why. I reinstalled windows freshly, and still after reinstalling all the apps I end up having this problem. When I reboot windows and log in my network freezes and so do all other apps that are about to start on login and I can't use windows. Right clicking on ESS icon shows no sign of firewall, then trying to go into advanced options to turn it off suddenly makes it show up. But by then my windows is basically frozen. So I need to reboot and do it maybe 3-4 times before once it will boot properly and firewall would start up without locking up. Usual messages I get when trying to change anything when this happens is firewall initialization failed try to reinstall or similar. Uninstalling ESS and reinstalling it doesn't help. I googled this problem alot and strangely very few people are reporting it but I'm not the only one, just nobody seems to be talking about it. What is going on?
